're in the "sideshow" now. another way for republicans to avoid getting support from low-income voters? enter tennessee state senator stacey campfield with this bold proposal. slash welfare benefits for parents whose kids do poorly in school. well, that's right. according to campfield, somehow the threat of less food on the table is the ticket to getting parents to help their kids in school. figure that one out. >>> anyway, something campfield said on this network was catnip for the folks at the tonight show. >>> tennessee state senator stacey campfield advocates he wants legislation that will reduce welfare payments to families if their kids are getting bad grades. they cut their welfare payments if the kids get bad grades. i'm not sure he did that well in school himself. this is a segment we call the botched cliche of the day senator edition. >> well, first off, we're not -- i'm not setting the bar like the kids have to become rocket surgeons. >> rocket surgeons. is that like tree surgeons? >>> next, let's take a look at this headline from the washington times. quote, reagan's home could become a par
to a deal. next, john from tennessee. caller: good morning. i am calling about the debt ceiling. yes, it does need to be raised. because we have to pay our bills. if the government is allowed to borrow money and set their circumstances, then why is the private business sector not allowed to do that? the federal reserve has been shut down as far as to the bankers, as far as the this man being able to borrow money. the industry in the united states needs money to operate on and and. we need to be able to borrow money. if his mrs. are not allowed to expand and grow, how do they expect to pay the us -- these debts down the road? get these guys out of here. they do not need to be making a lifetime commitment. they have gotten old and senile and did not even know where they are. it is a shame that our government has gone this far. it is just terrible. host: thank you for the call. if you're just joining us, or listening on c-span radio, thank you for joining us. the question we are asking is whether or not you think the president can bypass congress to raise the debt ceiling. you can join

. something that kind of shocked me in the great state of tennessee with the courthouse. i thought they couldn't really top fighting the ten commandment ins courthouses. having a place you put up thou shalt not kill is pretty funny. in cookeville, tennessee? >> in cookeville, tennessee they decided that a pastor there, a southern baptist pastor decided that what was missing from the putnam county courthouse were the words "in god we trust." okay, fine. it is on the money. it is essentially the model of the united states. because eisenhower got that passed in 1956. >> john: it is not the conservative point of view. the conservative point of view would be a separation of church and state as the founders intended. 18th century point of view is putting in god we trust in everything. >> they raised money to put "in god we trust" in two foot tall gold letters, not just on the front of the courthouse but on all four sides above every entrance. so that no matter where you walk into the courthouse, you see "in god we trust." >> that's very donald trump of them. >> i just want to know what's wrong with
us from tennessee, a democrat. caller: it does not matter who president obama nominates. as a report that came out in june that under president obama that 7% of the injuries have occurred in afghanistan. does that sound like we're winning? guest: steve used the word tribe. by talking about i am not the senator from israel. the problem with that kind of language is that it suggests that those who have a very strong strategic view about the u.s.-israeli relationship somehow are in the pocket of israelis. i think that is wrong. there are strategic reasons for the relationship. on afghanistan, i would say senator chuck hagel's held different positions. when the iraq war was going poorly and the search was suggested, senator chuck hagel said, we have taken our eye off the ball. the greatest threat the united states faces is between the mountains of pakistan and afghanistan. today, or previously, he opposed the president's surge in afghanistan. these are issues that need to be addressed. where does he think afghanistan is going to go? why did he think that afghanistan was such a vital, str
to the west. tennessee, areas up around chicago, two areas of low pressure, that in fact is our next storm system, trying to come together, as they both move eastward, producing snowfall here around 3:00. 2:00, 3:00, moving in from the west. light snow, but then as we get into the late afternoon, i think that snow will pick up just a bit, again dry, powdery snow blowing around a bit by the time we get to late afternoon and evening. some of the amounts that we'll be left with, again over an inch, maybe two, saturday cold and sunshine, there's a look at your snowfall totals, 1 to 2 inches expected. calvert beach could see more than that, up around 2 inches of snowfall. i'm expecting a warm-up above freezing, guys, 33 to 36, but watch what happened next week, into the 50s, maybe even close to 60 on wednesday uchts what? >> a big whoa. all this stuff will be gone by thursday. we'll appreciate the 50 degrees after this bitter coal. >>> we'll be running around in flip-flops. >>> red light cameras having an impact in one local city. that's coming up. >>> she made history. today she was pulled out
some state senator from tennessee and this guy has a bill in the state senate there that the amount of the welfare checks that the families get would be dependent on whether their children pass the standardized tests in school. in other words, if they didn't pass, then the welfare check would be reduced. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> caller: martin bashir was questioning that and the guy said well, we're not expecting the child to be a rocket surgeon and i thought rocket surgeon? rocket scientist yes. brain surgeon, yes. rocket surgeon? no. >> stephanie: are there rocket surgeons? i don't know. >> caller: i don't know. all i can think of is it is a good thing the tennessee state senators pay is not based on him passing standardized tests because i'm pretty sure he wouldn't pass. >> stephanie: exactly. >> i'm not a rocket propelled sturgeon but -- >> i just got a vision of a rocket-propelled sturgen in my head. that's very funny. someone will send a picture of that. >> stephanie: brain surgeon. >> i won't get because my e-mail has been hacked and it is useless. >> stephanie: you know, i
in died, a man in tennessee died. miguel marquez has more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, this affected so many people, the person who died here was not too far from where we are. this is ground central for where that tornado touched down in this area. he was in a trailer house, the tree went down and killed him inside of it but the storm crosses a broad swathe of the country, packed a powerful punch. >> we can see circulation in the cloud -- >> reporter: a reporter from atlanta affiliate wsb caught one twister as it touched down. >> toward i-75. >> reporter: in its path, utter destruction. this is main street in adairsville, georgia. you can see the back side of the street trucks completely destroyed own an this side a normal day of work at the daiqui plant, they come here to make parts for tractors, complete devastation, 50 to 100 people working here today, and across this entire area, trucks, everything, shredded. at the plant, justin carnes and his fellow employees took refuge in the bathroom. what did it sound like? >> walls shaking, everything was shaking. >> pressu
choir singing from tennessee at the invitation of senator lamar alexander. right now playing is the united states marine band often known as the president's band because they are performing constantly at events at the white house. and they are magnificent, might i say. >> john: indeed. i'm a big fan of the harmonica. >> jennifer: the harmonica? >> john: every kid gets a marine band harmonica as a kid. >> jennifer: who knew. great thing about the marine band is i can tell you, governor every year, the president has a state dinner, of course, where he invites the governors to come. it is inside of the white house. you sit at these ten top tables. the marine band comes at one point in the dinner, comes through the room, parking in between -- standing in between the tables and playing masterpieces of american -- obviously history, patriotic tunes. it is completely goosebump inspiring. they're magnificent. >> john: it is a parth of the pomp i really like it. is easy to pooh-pooh it and say it is too much ceremony. this is where what we have been and will be comes together in a con
and medicare from his list of priorities, and what, as my friend from tennessee pointed out, we have a $16 trillion debt. and for to us say that we're not going to do anything about spending when we all know that spending is the biggest problem we have in this agreement, again, that is throwing kerosene on the fire that's on the other side of the capitol and that's my republican colleagues on the other side of the aisle who have committed and pledged to their constituents that we will end this hemaging that -- hemorrhaging that we call spending which has given us the greatest debt in the history of this country. so i guess i would ask my colleague from south carolina, who is usually very modest and reticent in explaining his views particularly in various media outlets of his view on this situation. mr. graham: thank you, senator. i guess my first view is it's better not to go over the cliff than to go over the cliff, but it's also important, as you just said, to understand what we've accomplished. let's assume for a moment and let's hope that this is a good assumption that we reach an agre
schmitt. our focus, the nomination of chuck hagel. next, a democrat joining us from tennessee. good morning. caller: the republicans are going against everything and everybody that he puts up there. hadfields to be in a war and get hurt. not until you walk in your shoes. it is time for them to wake up. host: he has sacrificed a great deal, but nevertheless, i do not think that is the issue. the of the things i would say is it is not clear that senator hagel, he may not get many votes from republicans, but he may get some. more libertarian positions on foreign policy, and they would probably be more supportive than perhaps they would be supportive of a republican that had been in the white house. it is not clear that this division is simply republican versus democrat. host: this program is carried live on sundays. in london. go ahead. caller: it is a great discussion. thank you for giving us the opportunity. i am not american. i am and iranian. i have never been in the united states, but we used to have neighbors that were american. it is strange to me this obsession among the politi
, and actually jim cooper, a blue dog member of the democratic coalition of tennessee introduced this original. that's why they feel if they can hit the 217 number they'll get more democrats to support this. the idea is, once this passes the house, the debt limit would be extended to may 19th and possibly worked on afterwards, but if the senate does not come up with a budget by april 17th, any salaries would go into an escrow account until 2014. it's not really no budget, no pay, it's just no budget, you'll get your money later, because we legally have to give it to you. in the senate, those guys are straight cash. i don't think a lot of them are worrying too much if they lost their government pay. >> luke russert with the phrase of the day, those guys in the senate are straight cash. i have to introduce our friend joining the panel now, fresh from a stalled amtrak train in new jersey, msnbc contributor and "the huffington post" political editor sam stein. >> great to be here. i was loving the amtrak train, but this is better. >> magical place, my friend. >> what were we talking about? >> i'll
never mind. >> i am so shocked at party politics some days. look, corker in tennessee ran a rotten -- i thought a racist campaign against gerald ford. and running the way saxby chambliss ran against mx clinton, a war hero, i guy who had been maimed in the war, was horrible and yet i give them forgiveness in both have ended up being people who tried to work as legitimate congress people and senators -- >> trite to get something done. >> they did try to get something done and i give them credit for the way they ended if not the way they started. in fact, corker is still in the business but i wish saxby chambliss well in his decision. coming up -- thank you, sign thea and eugene robbins. >>> up next, fox news and sarah palin call it quits. with a lot of republicans saying the gop has to stop being the stupid party, this can't hurt, getting rid of her, but we'll see. this is "hardball," the place for politics. did i say that? rtunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even
